Canadian Fetal Rights Victory: Ontario’s Highest Court: Ob/Gyns Owe Care to Unborn Child


It doesn't actually affect the legal status of the fetus.

However, in practice, it will make obstetricians responsible for the well-being of prenatal human beings.

Interesting how the law says that OB\GYN's have a duty of care to a beings who do not exist as far as the law is concerned.

But that is the ridiculousness of that legal fiction.
